Netscape tarball: how to use it
I've downloaded netscape's tarball, and unzipped it with gunzip. Now
how do I access it to run the ns-install script? I guess I need a basic
lesson in "What's a tarball? Is it anything like a tarbaby?" Is it
like a zipped file in dos?
Forgive me for these remedial questions. I've only been using Linux for
a week, and have learned a ton from replies to my questions and from
reading others' comments. Thanks everyone, for your help!

wouldn't have to change my PATH setting.
In Netscape's tarball, the install script's name is
